Will Something Be LOST with Cast Separated in Season 5

 Lost showrunner Damon Lindelof has admitted that the show's bosses are concerned about the effects of splitting up the characters.

The repercussions for the fifth season led Lindelof to tell Sci Fi Wire: "We're concerned... I think everyone, writers and fans alike, feels the show is at its best when our characters are together, but the fact of the matter is that the story is constantly twisting and turning to keep them apart."

Lindelof also suggested that the split may only be a temporary measure that will work in the show's favour. "Let's face it, absence makes the heart grow fonder, but there's nothing sweeter than a reunion. All we're willing to say at this point is that if we were to spend the entire duration of season five with the Oceanic Six trying to get back to the island, we are fully aware that the audience would strangle us."

Ajira Airways Book A Flight Puzzle

I've been trying to find the answer to this puzzle other places and I've been trying to figure it out myself and I just can't do it.

I think from the clues.  You choose the following:

Destination Destiny

From: Los Angeles, CA (the time is right for the flight - 11:30 AM, and this is where Jack, Ben, (Jeremy's body) and Kate would already be, with Hurley and Sayid not far away from the commercials at least)

To:  Guam (from the origami boarding pass puzzle)

Departing: 01/21/2009 (from date stamp on the photo of the driver holding the 316 sign, this could be the 20th or 19th based on travel times.  The distance from LA to Agana, Guam is 6,089 miles.  I checked on some flight from LAX to Guam for January 21 and the shortest travel time would be 14 hours and 40 mins.  If you're flight was leaving at 11:30 am you'd have to leave January 20 or maybe January 19 depending on how many stops your fight would have.  One of the flight travel times was estimated at 33 hrs and 45 min.)

Select Flight: 316 - 11:30 am (from the sign and from the title of the episode 316)

Promotional Code: 112 114 111 109 111 (translated from DEC/CHAR this is promo -


Adults and Children could widely vary depending on who everyone is and who counts and who doesn't.

Adults:  Oceanic Six (Kate, Jack, Sayid, Hurley, Sun), Ben, Jeremy Bentham (Locke).  The body wouldn't count as a ticketed person.  That leaves 6 adults.

Possible Adults:  Frank, Desmond, Penny (and baby from one of the commercials, she wouldn't leave Desmond, but then Ben would kill her) Walt (adult or child).

Children:  Oceanic Six (Aaron)

Possible Children:  Ji Yeon (Sun wouldn't leave her behind), Walt (does he count as a child), Desmond and Penny's Child (if they go the baby goes)

Up to 10 adults (counting either Walt or the dead body as number 10) and up to 4 children (counting Walt and new baby).  I have tried most of these combinations and nothing has worked.

My Boarding Pass and Origami Answers


GUM is seen at the bottom of the hole (I cut mine open so I could take a better a picture (it's still blurry however).  I followed the instructions but got confused a couple of times, but finally got it right.  It was fun making a little origami box that is related to LOST.

Well Guam it is.  I've tried it as my destination on the "Book A Flight" section of the Ajira Airways website, but I still haven't successful booked a flight.

"316" in Ajira Airways Commercial

316_in_commericalI mentioned this in the previous post, here is a screen cap of the moment in the commercial when there for just a moment flashes a driver holding a "Ajira 316" sign in an airport.   "316" is the title for 7th episode of LOST Season 5 airing probably in March of 2009.  Flight 316 is one of the options to choose from on the Ajira Airways "Book A Flight" section of their newly updated site.

"316" can mean many things such as a flight number, but these numbers are stronger connected to the Bible.  John 3:16 is probably the most well known verse in the Bible.  The King James Version (KJV) of this verse is probably the most famous English translation, it says "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

Jesus is being quoted in this verse from a conversation that he was having with a Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.   Jesus tells Nicodemus a few verses prior to this one in verse 3, "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."  This chapter in the book of John have one of the most succinct message of the Christian gospel.

Here are some other widely used verses from the Bible that explain the good news about why God sent Christ to die on the cross for the sins of the world.

Romans 3:23 - “For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.”

John 14:6 - "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

Romans 5:8 - “But God demonstrates His love toward us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 6:23 - “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 10:9-10 - “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."

Romans 10:13 - “For whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.”

Have you ever called on the name of the LORD?  That is a much more important question that any raised by an episode of a TV show.

Ajira Airways Website Updated with New Content!

The site has been updated with several new areas.  The ad that was in the DSA video is there along with lost of goodies.  I have listed most of the goodies below.  Thanks.

booked "Book A Flight"
There are accepting reservations until January 21, 2009 - the premiere of LOST season 5.  However, this is a puzzle, because everything I've tried to enter so far gets the following.  I'm sure if you chose "Destination Destiny" it would have something to do with January 21, 2009.  I've tried several different ones, usually using Flight 316 since that was a hidden number in the commercial and the title of the of the upcoming episodes. I've also tried several different combinations of adults and children.  5 adults and 1 child for the Oceanic 6 and 5 adults and 2 children for the Oceanic 6 + Ji Yeon.  I'm sure someone has probably already figured this out. 


The following is the description of what they say here.  You can also print a sample boarding pass, which is cool.

"NOT SURE WHERE TO GO? Get lost in the wild wonder of the world and let time and space have no consequence. For $87 you’ll be whisked away to an unknown fateful destination of your destiny. China to Chicago, step aboard the grandest grab bag around. Upon arrival a brave new world will unfold right before your eyes. Pack light and prepare for the adventure of a lifetime as you experience the sensational world around us - only with Ajira Airlines’ DESTINATION: DESTINY."

Polar Adventure, Island Adventure, Swimming With Sharks and Excavation: Ruins are the 4 adventures listed.  All of these are posted by Posted by Antonio B. MacCutcheon.

"Travel Tip: Teach your kids some origami to make the time fly by. Be sure to use your boarding pass... you never know what you might find hiding right inside. Click here for detailed folding instructions."



"Welcome to Ajira Airways, a new kind of flying. We take our passengers from the whirlwind of their world into the wild possibilities of this infinite planet.

There is also some info about the AJIRA SKY CLUB MEMBERSHIP.

"Earn miles to travel in style with the luxury-enhanced Ajira Airways Sky Club credit card. The more you spend, the more miles you’ll bank towards globetrotting escapades. Redemption provides you a solo seat or a chance to charter your own personal plane. Your destiny awaits."

Also there is "weather" information about the destinations listed in the "Book A Flight" places you can go "to" and "from."  Obviously something is being suggested in that the time zones aren't working properly here.

LOST Season 5 Sneek Peek - Jack and Ben

I mentioned this video a few days ago and now I've found it on YouTube, so I've put it in this post.  Enjoy, seeing a little piece of the new season of LOST.

LOST Season Premiere Everyone in the Media has Seen It

It seems everyone is the media has seen the new LOST episodes.  I need a job at a newspaper again.  I've worked for three of them over the years, but it's been about 8 years since I last worked at one of the them.  Anyway, I've included part of Doc Jensen's article the link to the rest of the article is at the bottom.

"Lost’s tradition of opening the year with a killer, capture-the-imagination sequence is honored and upheld, though the thing I loved most was how it was brazenly frank (and engagingly funny) about the heady high-concept conceit that will define the season. Almost everything that followed that opening passage was pretty cool, too. Remember the non-linear structure of Pulp Fiction, which toggled between a number of storylines whose chronological relationship to each other is practically a puzzle for the audience to solve? Well, the season premiere is kinda like that. The first two episodes will have the audience — and the show’s characters — trying to make sense of shifts in time. They demand active engagement, and I found it to be a lot of fun. Especially the first hour.

Lots of Sawyer in the first two eps. Lots of his naked chest, too. Lots of Hurley, and as for his chest, it is covered...with a very funny T-shirt. Sayid also has mucho screen time in both episodes, though he sleeps his way through one of them. Literally. And Daniel Faraday emerges as a huge player in season 5. The eps are dotted with cameos and extended cameos from peripheral but important figures crucial to the Lost mythology and much-loved by the Lost fan community. A polarizing character from Lost’s past returns, earns some redemption by participating with wit and humility, and delivers one of the best lines of either episode. Once again, all things Ben just rock. And if you're familiar with the rather disturbing crush that Doc Jensen happens to have on a certain rarely-seen Lost someone, then you can imagine how I swooned when I saw her re-appear at long last in the second episode."

LOST Premiere Review from Jennifer Thomas

Jennifer Thomas at the Pioneer Local Blogs a member of the Sun-Times New Group has seen the first two episodes and have two articles about each of them.

Article One:  Un'Locke'd in time: A look at the 'Lost' premiere - Entertaining Ideas

"As a belated (and really exciting) present, ABC posted the two-hour Jan. 21 "Lost" Season 5 premiere on their media site. So here's a look at what goes on in the first hour of the premiere. (I ended up not holding off on watching the second episode of the premiere, so here's some "Lost" tidbits from the remaining hour.)"

Articles Two:  Look at 'Lost' Season 5 premiere take two - Entertaining Ideas

"I was planning on waiting to watch the second hour of the "Lost" Season 5 premiere on Jan. 21, but I caved and watched it all. It's interesting how things are being reinvented for Season 5: there aren't just flashbacks and flash forwards, time is pressing in from both sides (the time of the group left behind on the island and the Oceanic 6 three years into the future) and it's distorted and overlapping. Based on the premiere episodes, "Because You Left" and "The Lie," this definitely looks like it's going to be a very solid season. Here are some points from the second hour of the season premiere."

E! Online Lost Premiere Preview

Jennifer Godwin offers some commentary after viewing the season premiere of LOST.

Sure, sure, the Lost mythology is a miracle to behold. It's grandiose, compelling, gaspworthy and, despite what the haters would have you believe, altogether satisfying, but come on: There's a lot more to Lost than Dharma, the numbers and the four-toed statue: There's love. Yes, love.

I've seen the first two hours of Lost season five, so let's cut right to the romantic chase and answer the big questions: Which couples are still hot? Which ones are not?

More Questions on LOST Season 4 Finale

We see the Oceanic 6, Desmond and Frank watch the island disappear.  Obviously they don't know what happened to the island or the people until Jeremy Bentham aka John Locke comes to see them and tells them the horror stories of what happened, which causes Jack to decide that he needs to go back and try to prevent what happened.

That's interesting enough, but what do the people remaining on the island initially think happen to those who were on the freighter?  They see the smoke and assume that their rescue is over.  Juliette is drinking after seeing the smoke, so I would think that all of those on the boat or on the way to the boat would be dead if I were them.  How did John know to go off the island to find people.  I guess Jacob told him what to do again.

Will the island bring John back to life?  Has John faked his death?  Did Christian fake his death?  Was John bitten by those spiders like the most hated LOST characters ever Nikki and Paulo?  They had to show those spiders for some reason, right?

Happy Pre-Year (It's almost New Year)


New LOST Season 5 Trailer - Spoilers!

There are some interesting things in this trailer.  It seems Sun has a gun on Kate and probably Jack.  It seems that Desmond and Penny have a baby.  It also seems that we see John ducking from Eko's drug smuggling plane that had some of his buddies and his brother on it when it crashed on the island killing them all.

Dharma Special Access 12/29

ajira_airways_commerical A new Ajira Airways commercial is at the end of the question and answer session with Damon and Carlton.

This week on the video from Dharma.   We will learn why Christian is wearing white shoes in Season 5.  We also may be seeing more of the four toed statue this season, we should see more in Season 6.  Will Ben be getting a love interest?  No.  We did learn that Alex was killed at least in part for the shock of having someone actually killed in a hostage situation, that never happens.

The special access password this week was "emal", which is oh course lame spelled backwards.  This weeks video was not lame, an interesting password none the rest.

Ryan From the Island's LOST Blog

I've listened to the Transmission and heard Ryan with Jay and Jack from time to time, but I never visited his LOST blog until today.  Ryan always has the lateset LOST filming scoop since he lives in Hawaii.  Just thought I'd share and check out his podcast.

2 Sneek Peeks for Season Premiere on

You can see two new clips of the season premiere, one featuring Ben and Jack in a hotel room, and another featuring Kate, Aaron and some lawyers.  Check out the super new clips, that will help pass the time until January 21 arrives.

What Has Happened to Sun?

I rewatched Season 4 over Christmas.  And one of the many things that jumped out to me on this watching, was how much Sun has changed.  What's going on with her?  She bought controlling interests in her father's company, which is pretty cool.  She also is blaming her father and from his comments, Jack, for the death of Jin.

The real shocker with Sun is her decision to align herself with from all appearances the real "Big Bad" of LOST Charles Whidmore.  What will Sun do?  How will this new alliances change the world of LOST.

Can You Change the Future on LOST?

I've been rewatching season 4 on DVD, and I was thinking about 'The Constant" which is my favorite episode of the series.  Daniel actually tells Desmond that you can't change the future, and when they first meet in 1996 he mumbles something about a paradox.  Desmond was also told when he first time travel experience that he couldn't change things, and that the universe would course correct. 

From all the evidence in the show, in "The Constant" Desmond did change the future.  Desmond was able to talk to Penny because her got her new phone number back in '96.  If he had not done that, he would have died.  He wouldn't have a constant and would have ended up like George. 

That's just one small way that he changed the future when he called Penny.  Desmond is responsible for the actual rescue of the Oceanic 6, because Penny comes out to get Des after talking to him on the phone. 

Anyway, Desmond has time traveled twice now, and has changed the future.  How will things change this season since it appears that the island moved through time and space?

LOST will be back in about 4 Weeks!

After all these months, the wait is almost over.  The LOST Ones will be back in action in their two-hour season premiere.  I'm excited and I'm sure you are too if you're reading this or any of the other LOST blogs. 

What are you most excited about seeing?  What happened to the island?  Where the island go?  When did the island?  Are John and Jin really dead?  Was that really John in the coffin?

We'll learn more and have more questions to ask soon enough.  Merry Christmas!

Uninterrupted LOST Season 5

"Barring any unforeseen circumstances, Lost fans will find themselves watching the upcoming Season 5 without interruption, sources tell

Of course, going interruption-free has always been the plan for the series' final three seasons. Season 4, however, was compromised by last winter's WGA strike. And looking ahead to this season, ABC has yet to confirm any scheduling plans. One insider speculates that the network may decide to maximize their May sweeps payoff by "stretching out" Season 5 with a week off or two, rather than have the finale air mid-month."

IGN: Top 50 Lost Loose Ends: What We Know Now

"Way back in November 2006, we wrote a feature called "IGN's Top 50 Lost Loose Ends." At the time, even though we were big fans of Lost (and remain so) we were getting pretty frustrated with the show and its lack of answers. The third season had just begun and it felt like fans were getting more way more questions than actual answers.

After a mind-bending third season finale and a truly stellar fourth season, we now look at Lost differently. It feels like a lot's been answered in the last two years, so we decided to take a look back and see just how much we know now about those little loose ends that were driving us nuts a couple years ago.

Please note that the purpose of this article is just to look back at what we know now about our original list of 50 loose ends. We completely realize that there have been new questions raised since then -- and we'll address those in a future feature article.

Maybe it was just a marketing scheme like “Heroes” whole ‘Save The Cheerleader Save The World’ thing in season one but I fell hook, line and sinker for season four’s genius idea to allow six survivors off the island – Jack, Hurley, Kate, Sayid, Aaron (Claire’s son), and Sun. Now we need to find out why they have to go back and where exactly the island went and basically just what the hell is this show really about! January 21 cannot come soon enough!

60-Second Q&A: Jim Longeretta, CEO, Digital Vortechs | HD/Studio

Why Lost Made the Move to HD Editorial

The editorial team on ABC’s Lost made a big move this year, bumping up the quality in the Avid suite from SD to HD. The show is currently editing for the first time using Avid’s DNxHD 36 codec for the season that premieres in January 2009. The technology is provided by Santa Monica’s Digital Vortechs, which outfits TV, feature film, and commercial shoots with editorial pipelines. HD Studio got CEO Jim Longeretta on the phone to find out how fast the industry is switching over to high-res editorial.

"The Constant" - Top Ten TV Episodes from TIME

1. Lost, "The Constant"

At its best, Lost rips your heart out while it ties your brain in a knot. This season 4 episode did both expertly. Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick) has been experiencing premonitions of the future since becoming "unstuck in time" (a la Slaughterhouse Five) earlier in the series. It turns out that he's been time-traveling, or rather, his mind has: his consciousness is journeying between present, future and past. (It makes sense when you watch, trust me.) The unfortunate side effects of this condition are madness and death, avoidable only by focusing on a "constant": a person or thing present in each time one's consciousness visits. Desmond's constant, he learns, is Penny (Sonya Walger), the girlfriend he left behind when he was stranded on Lost's mysterious island. His journey into his own past to find her in the present is tear-jerking and mind-blowing.

LOST Season 4 on DVD & Blu Ray - December 9th

We're just a couple of days away from the big release of my favorite season of LOST on DVD and Blu-Ray! Click on the picture below for more information!

LOST Season 5 Spoilerish - Who is Dan Norton?

In the clip that was released this week from LOST Season 5 episode 1 "Because You Left."  Dan Norton, a lawyer from Augustine and Norton, comes to Kate's door wanting DNA samples from her and the baby to prove maternity. 

Who would doubt that this is Kate's baby?  He could not divulge the name of his client, so who is it?  Whidmore?  Claire's mom?

Why would a judge sign this court order?

New Sayid on the set of LOST!

Oh, don't get your knickers in a knot! Naveen Andrews isn't leaving Lost. However, if my hunch is correct, in this season's 10th episode -- a Sayid-centric outing that starts shooting later this week -- a new actor will be playing his part.

"Whatchutalkinbout', Willis?" you say?

Follow along now: A casting call has gone out for the roles of a father and his 12- and 8-year-old sons, all of whom, I'm told, will have to be fluent in Arabic. So wouldn't a logical assumption be that the hotheaded dad is Sayid's pop and the older boy, a sensitive type who's painfully aware that he lets down his formidable paterfamilias, is the future assassin himself?

That's what I thought, too! The hour promises to be a real crusher, with Dad teaching his elder son the kind of lesson in manhood that I suspect inflicts lifelong emotional scars.

Are you ready for Sayid's untold story to be told? Or are you afraid that it will be so intense, it'll qualify as must-wince TV? Comment away below! (Additional reporting by Andy Patrick)

Question: In a just-released ABC press release about Lost, it
states that Jeremy Davies and Ken Leung will be part of the main cast, but Rebecca Mader is not. Do you have any information that may explain this? -- Eric

Jeremy and Ken are series regulars; Rebecca is not.
Easy peesy. In other Lost news, awesome promo alert!

Carlton and Damon are two of EW's 25 Smartest People in TV


AGES 45; 49; 35
TITLES Exec producer, Desperate Housewives; exec producers, Lost
SMART BECAUSE They manage TV phenoms better than anyone, a coveted skill in an era of audience erosion and fickle fandom. Cherry kept the creative bacon sizzling on Wisteria Lane with a five-year leap in time that gave audiences a new reason to tune in to the fifth season. Meanwhile, Team Darlton — who chose to end Lost in 2010 — restored the show's cool with a season that earned the series its first best-drama Emmy nom since season 1.

J.J. Abrams is one EW's 25 Smartest People in TV


AGE 42
TITLE Exec producer, Fringe
SMART BECAUSE Every network wants to be in the J.J. business — even after the so-so start for Fox's Fringe, which has been finding its voice and growing due to his hands-on nurturing. (Getting paired with American Idol in 2009 should lead to an even bigger audience boost.) Movies beckon (Star Trek = drool), but the lucrative deal he signed with Warner Bros. in 2006 will keep Abrams committed to the small screen at least through 2012.

LOST Season 5 Background

You can download the latest LOST season 5 cast background now!  Are they any clues in this photo for the upcoming season?  Why is most of the cast wearing black?  Why are three of them noticeably wearing blue?  Why is this the first time I've seen Dharma 2-Liter?  Why are there more Dharma saltines and beer on the floor?   It's definitely an interesting compilation of the LOST stars.
